There will be no additional compensation for the “bone bruise” on Lucius Fox that was undiagnosed before the trade. Matt Silverman checked, but no go. Overall, this means that Fox will probably rest for the remainder of this year, but aside from lost time, it shouldn’t effect his development too much.
The other major part of the deal, Matt Duffy, arrives back off the DL today.
Blake Snell had a pretty rough go of it yesterday, but overall, the Rays have been good recently.
